Periodicals devoted to psychology began publication in a number of countries in the last quarter of the 19th century, when psychology became a science. Among the first such journals were the British Mind (London, since 1876) and the German Philosophische Studien (Leipzig, 1881–1903) and Zeitschrift für Psychologie und Physiologie der Sinnesorgane (Hamburg-Leipzig, 1890–1906). Psychologische Studien (Leipzig, 1905–18) and Psychologische Forschung (Berlin, 1921–39) were published in Germany in the 20th century. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Russian journals of psychology included Voprosy filosofii i psikhologii (Problems of Philosophy and Psychology; 1889–1918), Obozrenie psikhiatrii, nevrologii i eksperimental’noi psikhologii (Review of Psychiatry, Neurology, and Experimental Psychology; St. Petersburg, 1896–1918), and Vestnik psikhologii, kriminal’noi antropologii i pedologii (Journal of Psychology, Criminal Anthropology, and Pedology; St. Petersburg, 1904–17).
A large number of specialized psychology journals began publication in the 20th century, with the total number growing to approximately 1,000 in the early 1970’s. This increase was due to the differentiation of various disciplines within psychology and to the development of interdisciplinary studies at the interface of psychology, biology, social sciences, and technical scientific disciplines. In addition to journals that publish research of a particular country in the language of that country, there are international and regional psychology journals.
